death in his grave

Here’s a chord chart: deathinhisgrave-lead

Due to the overwhelming response to my commentary on the song “Death In His Grave”, I’ve decided to post this little how-to video with a chord chart.

I like to play the song with a capo on the second fret and use a “C” voicing where the key is in “D” but I chord like I’m playing in “C”.  I think it gives the song an older voicing which I personally like.  For example the verse chords would technically be D A Bm G but with capo on the 2nd fret, I would play them like they were C G Am F etc…

enjoy

Death In His Grave (Performance Video) from john mark mcmillan on Vimeo.

Though the Earth cried out for blood

Satisfied her hunger was


Billows calmed on raging seas

for the souls of men she craved

Sun and moon from balcony

Turned their head in disbelief

Their precious Love would taste the sting

disfigured and disdained

On Friday a thief

On Sunday a King

Laid down in grief

But woke with the keys

Of Hell on that day

The first born of the slain

The Man Jesus Christ laid

Death in his grave

So 3 days in darkness slept

The Morning Sun of righteousness

But rose to shame the throws of death

And overturn his rule


Now daughters and the sons of men

Would pay not their dues again

The debt of blood they owed was rent

When the day rolled a new


On Friday a thief

On Sunday a King

Laid down in grief

But awoke holding keys

To Hell on that day

The first born of the slain

The Man Jesus Christ

Laid death in his grave


He has cheated Hell and seated us above the fall

In desperate places he paid our wages one time once and for all
